Group B Streptococcus Sequence Type 283 Disease Linked to Consumption of Raw Fish, Singapore.

Abstract

An outbreak of invasive group B Streptococcus (GBS) disease occurred in Singapore in mid-2015. We conducted a case-control study of 22 adults with invasive GBS infections during June 21-November 21, 2015. Consumption of raw fish was strongly associated with invasive sequence type 283 infections, but not with non-sequence type 283 infections.
